La fédération départementale des foyers ruraux du Gers

Abstract : Since 1962 the Fédération Départementale des Foyers Ruraux du Gers (The Departmental Federation of Rural Community Halls within Gers) has injected life into rural areas, bringing together resources not only for the benefit of the agricultural community, but also to help modern and traditional cultural activities, as well as the economy. Through over 50 years’ work, including both success stories but also failure, the Rural Community Halls have been fighting against population drain, and the loss of identity of the Gersoise countryside, using the watchword "For an attractive living environment that is full of life". By studying the archives and testimonies of employees and volunteers from within the association, a picture is painted of the Gersoise rural history, in which we see how the Federation’s numerous activates have accompanied the deep changes within the area.
